I am a certified personal and professional development coach living and working in Beijing.
Having started my professional career in Egypt, where I worked as a translator and a cultural tours guide, I relocated to Holland where I switched careers and worked as a cross-cultural trainer and group coach.
Later on I specialized in educational management, leading a training and assessment center and finally a development and support center for adult education in Belgium.
In 2008 I moved to China to join Small Steps (China) ltd. as a partner and as a coach.
In my coaching practice I have clients from many different walks of life: singers, actors, photographers, filmmakers, executives, small business owners and NGO staff.
I am an International Coach Academy graduate (CPC), a certified NLP Master Practitioner and a certified trainer.
I hold a MA in Eastern Philology and a post-grad in International Development from the University of Ghent (B), and graduated in Business Administration at the Higher Economic School of Rotterdam (The Netherlands),.
With my NLP background and years of working experience I am trained to attentively listen to my clients and be a sounding board helping them reach a state of awareness about the area where they are facing obstacles.
Throughout the coaching process I keep the client accountable and ensure that they have the ownership of the learning and behavior change. When the client lacks skills and information about the topic that we cover I provide necessary structures and tools that enable them to reach their coaching objectives. Finally, I challenge my clients into action at times when they are blocked by fear or lack of confidence in reaching successful outcomes.
I bring a global perspective to coaching as I have worked with over 40 different nationalities and have lived in Europe, Africa and Asia. From this perspective I am highly skilled to work with clients in multinational organizations where some of the leadership issues may involve cross-cultural issues.
